Qualcomm taps former AMD CTO

Written by Fudzilla staff



Demers is all about Adreno now


Former AMD CTO Eric Demers has joined the world’s premiere ARM chip maker Qualcomm.

The news is not official yet, but Demers received a few congratulations from his colleagues on Facebook. Although there is no official word on what exactly Demers will do at Qualcomm, rumour has it that he will join the Adreno graphics team.

AMD sold off its Imageon business in Qualcomm three years ago for just $65. Fast forward to 2012 and much of Imageon’s tech is being employed by Qualcomm’s Adreno graphics team. Demers will apparently manage the team and help come up with even more competitive mobile graphics.

And three years on we are still baffled by AMD’s decision to sell Imageon.
